Summary

Summary

This text offers a contemporary critique of liberal democracy, examining the meaning of democracy today, as it faces the challenges of feminism, multiculturalism, globalization and European integration. The author discusses the notions of sovereignty, constitutionalism and representation, and analyzes the liberal concept of citizenship. He then surveys the conceptual history of civil society, and presents republican and deliberative politics (after Habermas) as alternative conceptualizations of democracy.
